The Farm – Fruit and Vegetables

May 13, 2022


Fruit & Veggies









V v – Vegetables

The Pups had another great week at school playing, learning and having fun!

This week we learnt about the farm – fruits and vegetables. The Pups got to taste all different kinds of fruit. We played: Guess what this fruit and veg is? And to our surprise our Pups did so well, they could name mostly everything; from the simple names such as apples, grapes, potato to the more difficult such as spinach and broccoli, well done Pups! This is an awesome game to play with your Pup at home, while you’re cooking up a storm! We also spoke about the farm and how our fruit and vegetables grow, with seeds, soil, water and love!

For art this week we did some fruit and vegetable stamping. The Pups then built their own basket by “weaving and sticking” the cardboard together. I then placed all the fruit and veg in front of the Pups and asked them to show me and tell me what fruit or vegetable it was. The children then had to pick it up, take the glue and stick it on their basket, some needed my assistance while others were super confident doing it on their own. The way they pronounced some of the fruit and veg names had us in stitches. They are just too ADORABLE and we know they are trying their best.

It’s getting much cooler here and we can definitely feel the icy air here at Ecokids and with Winter being here, along with it comes all the sickies. We are doing whatever we can to teach our Pups that they need to cough in their elbows, not lick their toys and to wash hands as often as possible so that we don’t spread germs! Our Pups are still so tiny so they are the first ones to catch anything flying around in the air which is out of our control. We just need to help them fight against it and let their bodies immune system fight against the ghoghos. Thank you all for keeping your babies at home and sticking to our sick policy, we appreciate it and it helps us fight the spreading of germs. We hope all our Pups who were at home this week are recovering nicely and that they are ready to be back at school next week, we’ve missed them so much!

We are still finding that a lot of clothing hasn’t been labeled, please, PLEASE label everything as we can’t always keep track of who wore what and who’s is who’s! Items that aren’t labeled will be put into the lost property box.

We hope you and our Pups have a lovely weekend, keep warm and we will see you back at school on Monday.

We kicked off the fun with some imaginative play, pretending to drive cars and be trains. The Pups absolutely loved it! Their giggles and excitement filled the room as they zoomed around and chugged along.

There was also lots of messy play, which, of course, the Pups had a blast with. One of the most fun activities was decorating a sheep with icing sugar and adding popcorn for its wool. The smiles on the Pups’ faces as they carefully placed each piece of popcorn were absolutely priceless!
